If you recall from last year, LEGO Ideas launched a building contest dubbed as Build That Holiday. The contest centers on recreating your dream summer holiday vacation using only a limited number of bricks, ranging only from 150 to 250 LEGO pieces. As a fan vote contest, the entry with the highest number of LEGO fan votes was eventually selected to become the next LEGO GWP or gift-with-purchase set. And this time, we have confirmation that this GWP will be finally offered next month in the form of the LEGO Ideas Dream Holiday Sailboat (40487).
According to Promobricks, the LEGO Ideas Dream Holiday Sailboat (40487) GWP will most likely be offered to LEGO VIPs starting August 1, and August 4 for everyone else. This promotional item will be added to your LEGO shopping cart automatically when you reach a single receipt, 200€ price point. I have to admit that it’s on a quite high qualifying purchase range, but we have to wait and see for the August 2021 LEGO Store Calendar to have a full grasp of the promo.
The LEGO Ideas Dream Holiday Sailboat (40487) is based on the winning entry, Sailing Ship Adventure by yc_solo. With a total of 887 fan votes over at the LEGO Ideas platform, it has been voted to become the next GWP set similar to what the fan-based platform did with other promotional sets such as the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) and the upcoming, LEGO Ideas The Adventures of the USS Cardboard. As a fan of LEGO brick-built vignettes, I’m certainly looking forward to these sets. I just hope that LEGO will offer these promotional sets at somewhat lower qualifying purchase price points. I guess we just have to wait and see.
